Subject: --
A very uneven, mixed bag here - they played *far* more interestingly the show before @ Asheville:

But first, The Good:
*That absolutely *funked out* Maggie's Farm. Yep, that's definitely how you reinvent a Dylan tune!
*Minglewood. It doesn't drop down into that familiar chord on the 3rd verse, but instead stays taut and tense, unchanged. A cool move. Bobby's since spiced up the lyrics once again. What should we call this thing: "The New All-New New Minglewood Blues"?
*Come Together > Caution > Caboose: these three provide the only real fireworks in the 2nd set, if you want to count that cool drive at the end of the Rag...

The Sleepy:
*From Foolish Heart through the end of St. of Circumstance the band really is in sleepwalk mode. I dug how they handled LS > Saint in December, @ Asbury Park, but this one really ain't cuttin' it. You've got to play Saint wound up tighter than a snare drum, energy really bleeding out - can't coast on this tune. I don't know, just listen to any Dead great show from 1980 with this combo, and then listen here.
*After Caboose they go into two ballads, and then Cold Rain. You really can't build up momentum to make that tune a closer from two ballads. And no, I have absolutely no problem with them covering Ryan Adams or the Beatles or whomever - it's all about context. In this case, the energy is almost deliberately muted. Even the aforementioned Caution feels just on the restrained side.

*Shrugs*. Been four years here since the reviews stopped - I've decided to give this tour another listen. While a lot of these shows are indeed great, this one had everyone's underwear in a bundle, but posterity gleans a more sober viewing panel. Furthur's a good band, but this show 50/50.
Reviewer: zaylosh - - April 29, 2010
Subject: Bring on the new stuff!
I've been a fan for more than 30 years. I saw The real McCoy dozens and dozens and dozens of times. In my opinion, it was never about just the set list, just the venue, etc. It was the way all these things came together to create an energy that was derived from the band feeding off of the emotion of the crowd, who in turn fed off the emotion band, and so on. Every so often this virtuous circle became so powerful that the entire scene transcended the traditional notions of a "concert" - the show became an otherworldly ceremony.

The serendipity of it all was the icing on the cake. You just never knew when a single song, half or whole set, or an entire show would pop up out of no where and transform you to that chimerical sphere.

For me, there was a 15-year hiatus after Jerry passed without the existence of another one of those occurrences - That all ended this year. John was the missing link.

There are numerous so-called "x-factor" moments on this tour. The closing stanza of this show provides just one example. The new potato caboose, nobody girl, china doll, cold rain sequence is just pure magic.

Phil's rendition of new potato is simply hypnotic. The ensuing nobody girl is the highlight of the show. It's wholly Jerry-esque in just how low John is able to go strumming the opening chords, as well as in the emotion with which the lyrics echo forth. The belly of the tune is reminiscent of a soulful JGB gospel effort, while the crescendo is very definitely Dylan influenced. Pay attention to the crowd's reactions as this tune progresses. The energy just builds and builds. You can hear laughter, gasps, and bellows of encouragement that give way to joyful screams. John's performance is noticeably enhanced by this hearty approval. Finally the whole thing explodes into a climactic cascade. The china doll is appropriately morose but the uppity cold rain and snow provides the perfect juxtaposition and a happy finale.

This stuff is alchemy folks, JUST LIKE THE DAYS OF OLD and we're all damn lucky to have another run at it. Let's pray that this iteration of the band is here for the long haul.
Reviewer: ShowLove_ShineLight - - March 6, 2010
Subject: Hmmm..
This show has me puzzled... It's a bit like the night before, meaning great, then good then so-so..then great again.

I think some of you who think they should only stick to GD and common GD covers are NUTS. Let them push boundaries and take it furthur! THATS WHAT THE DEAD IS ALL ABOUT!...HELLOOO?? I thought the Adam's tune was GREAT. sounded like a Dylan song.

The show begins, right where 2-9 left off. ON FIRE. The opening jam is one of the best jams i've heard this band play. Sunshine>Crazy Fingers> Me and my uncle?! Amazing. Hottest start to any show thus far. John destroyed uncle...maggies farm kinda kills the energy. Cosmic Charlie and foolish heart are nice to hear.

The begininning of set 2 is good, not spectacular. Sailor>saint is on point, but i think they should split up doin that rag and come together. Not meaty enough for set two. I would either put come together at the start of the set, before sailor...or move it after China Doll and before Cold rain and snow.

Just when i was thinking that this might be a bit of an off night. Jam>Caution>New Potato>Nobody Girl>China Doll>Cold Rain was fucking beautiful! Some of the best stuff i've heard from this band. I kinda wish Caution was spaced out like the Pigpen versions, or like the one with Warren from 5-1-09, but it gets the job done and the jams before it and after it melting into new potato is bliss. Especially if you love new potato as much as I do..Perfect placements for new potato, china doll & nobody girl. Before I knew this tune was a Ryan Adams tune, I was willing to bet it was a Bob Dylan song. Sounds great! Cold Rain and Snow was hot..and i'm not complaining, but i woulda liked a monster like St. Stephen to end that raucous close to the set.

Subject: JK
I also had the privelage of seeing Jerry and the boys back in the day, and i for one have been jonesin' for this lineup. Phil and Bobby are great at what they do. They should stick to that. Personally hearing Phil sing terrapin just makes my skin crawl. Hearing Bob sing slow Jer tunes is almost as bad. And don't even get me started about Warren. John ISN'T Jerry but he is the best thing that happened to this band since '95. I'm grateful that Phil and Bobby had the stones to ask JK to join the band instead of a huge name like Warren. Keep on keepin on. These guys sound great.
Reviewer: bluedylan - - February 22, 2010
Subject: JK
He is most certainly not a kid. He is also, in my opinion, very good. I personally don't want to hear bob weir sing jerry tunes. He sounds fine on his songs but he just doesn't have the voice for the delicate ballads. That's exactly what JK is great at, among other things pertaining to grateful dead music. let it shine, let it shine.
Reviewer: linebackerjay62 - - February 19, 2010
Subject: all good
Been watching Bob and phil together since the early 90's back when Jerry was around. Even caught 3 shows with Warren last spring,been to many a Ratdog show and seen Phil and friends my share enough. It was`great seeing them again on the same stage. Maybe Phil will hook up with Ratdog? Sound quality exceptional at small venue show! Not a fan of the D.S.O. kid though give me Ratdog and Phil and friends.The kid just did not fit for me,was i the only one who felt this way? But like i said i was there for Bob and Phil.And set list or not they put on a good show!
Reviewer: chris in long beach - - February 15, 2010
Subject: Answer for lzwm
lzwm, the purchases from the Further site will be soundboards, so they will sound much better. Well, better meaning much more clean and balanced. Some prefer audience recordings. The soundboard will be more like a studio CD.
Reviewer: lzwm - - February 15, 2010
Subject: good show, great recording
Awesome recording, sounds great.

QUESTION: I was hoping someone on here could help me. I just attended the show in Fairfax and absolutely loved it. I don't think this show has been uploaded yet.

My question is, what is the difference in quality of paying to download a show from the Furthur website versus listening to it on here? I mainly want to know if paying $14 is going to get me something better than what is provided on archive?

Thanks for the help, and may the Dead live on.
Reviewer: BuddahBen - - February 15, 2010
Subject: Oh what a feeling
I attended the Futhur show at bojangles coliseum and thought that it was one of if not the best "phil n friends" show i've seen. How do you complain about whose song they play? Nobody Girl blew me and all my friends minds when we heard it. No one knew what or whose song it was, just that they were blowin it up! To find out the next day it was a Ryan Adams song, was a little odd for us, and crazy cuz he grew up in the same small town as us and hell, even played around with a couple of us growing up. but i digress. My point bein it was an awsome show regardless of whose songs were played or covered b/c when a GD band plays it, it is never the same!
Reviewer: a1pun - - February 15, 2010
Subject: Let it Grow
What an awesome quality recording! Ahhh life is so good these days... I agree that these guys should stick to the GD repetoire, or at least stick to the traditional non GD songs that they played so well. or even Ratdog, but please no Ryan Adams. Why Beatles even? Why not do some JGB tunes? Harder they come? After Midnight? Anyway, still love what they're doing. Think Bob and Phil are killin it. Jeff too. Still not sure about JK but he's growing on me. This show rocked, overall.
Reviewer: danger3ooo - - February 14, 2010
Subject: good recording!
this is a real solid recording i appreciate this. i was at this show and although the set is not my style it was great to see the boys for sure. it was kinda cool seeing a set that i didnt really prefer because instead of dancing in a alcohol (etc.) induced haze i got to really listen to the guys kill it up there.
Reviewer: docta jonez - - February 14, 2010
Subject: could play the crappiest songs ever written and still sound good"
not knocking lennon/mccartney or adams on their own merits - actually like some of the adams stuff that pl&f does. my point is that this band is SPECIFICALLY (John K) designed to sound like the GRATEFUL DEAD, and therefore I get knocked off course when an hour long Shakedown>He's Gone>Bird Song>Unbroken ends with a Ryan Adams tune, for example. There werent too many jams in 1970 that went New Potato>Caution>Nobody Girl...
Dylan is my favorite non-GD artist, but do you want to hear bobby try to tackle Senor halfway through a 2nd set when the GD never played it before? Wouldn't you rather see a precious setlist spot get filled with something from the vast GD playbook like til the Morning comes or Caution or King Solomons? Instead of an Adams ipod special or a 7min Beatles tune? IMO the GD never did beatles tunes that well anyway, with the exception of one or two LSD's where Jerry nailed the lyrics and the TNK's coming out of Vince's Baba O' Encores. think about it: mangled blackbirds, grating do it in the roads, mumblefest revolutions, whatever phil does to strawberry fields..... Love this band, but they should exclusively hit GD stuff IMO.
Reviewer: Head Buzz - - February 14, 2010
Subject: What I've been waiting for....
I never had the privilege to Jerry, but now I know the next closest thing. Having seen "The Dead" several times, and Phil many more, along with some Rat Dog, and DSO. This band is definitely my favorite. Close your eyes and you'll be transported back to '72, '78, '89, and many great years between. Phil and Friends have filled the void, but this band brings the heat!

The show is brought to us with stunning sound for the Old Coliseum, from a great taper, Mr. Z-man. Very nice setlist, only a few flubbed notes here and there, and strong vocals from all. I will be listening to this one again and again. Oh and by the way, there is some incendiary guitar by this guy named John. He's in a role of a lifetime.

To Docta Jones, I am curious what songwriters you think are better than Lennon/McCartney and Ryan Adams? Are you also trashing Bob Dylan because they played "Maggie's Farm"? C'mon man!
Reviewer: Wiccan_Druid - - February 13, 2010
Subject: hell ya
Here's to that steve. Kadlecik is really his own entity. Keep up the good work!
Reviewer: steve rain - - February 13, 2010
Subject: Why would someone complain about ....
this is to the reviewer bitching about hearing a Ryan Adams song or a Beatles song in the second set or any set for that matter? I for one think it's killer to hear someone else's arrangements of songs I love or may have never heard before, and from what I can sea and hear ...these boys could play the absolute crappiest songs ever written and still make the music completely new and fashioned in the moment.
some people HAVE GOT to complain about something, No Matter how good everything else was/is


LOL

See ya's in Amherst!

Great show!!! wow!!!

But a 5+ min Me & My Uncle, is that really needed;) It may just be time to retire that song? Not that it was bad at all, in fact the keys solo was great...

So happy this tour is off to such a great sounding start!
Reviewer: c_lo25 - - February 12, 2010
Subject: Awesome Show!!
This is my first Grateful Dead show. All I can say is Wow. I can only image what it was like with all the original band members, especially with Jerry.

Thanks Zman! I'll cherish this one.

WOW my first time seeing Bobby and Phil since 1995.
I loved Bobby sayin he would crawl to san fran during minglewood.Lost>St. WOW
CAUTION I'm tellin ya I shed a tear at this show.Great show for my first in 15 years.
Reviewer: lien0569 - - February 12, 2010
Subject: Great show, awsome recording
Highlites for me:

All in all, GRATE first set. Even MAMU & Minglewood (T right here in Charlotte!) had energy, no real train wrecks here at all. Thought I heard Bob get confused at the 2nd verse in Maggie's, then he took it . . . was he expecting someone else too? He ended up singing all verses.

Crazy Fingers (JK nails it, beautifully, and a nice Crazy Fingers flavored jam intro, nice interplay between JK and Chimmenti)
Maggies Farm (liking the slinky, slower bluesier Bob version. Was kinda looking forward to JK singing a verse, but he didn't. Out of respect for DSO? Classy guy if thats the case.)
Candyman (JK OWNS this song, nice slide work by Bob, Phil laying down the rumbling, shifting foundation like a california quake ;)
Foolish Heart (as was said before, this might be the best version I've heard since the fat man played it)
Cosmic Charlie (nice set closer, U can tell Phil loves to play this)

2nd set
Lost sailor/Saint - Never been a big fan but I have to admit I was diggin it here. Turned out to be a perfect set opener)
Rag - Nice funky version
Come together - losing a little steam here . . .but the boys pick up on it. and the train picks up speed, Phil loading the burner with coal, now were moving . . . Jam into
CAUTION - Magnificent version, highlite of the show for me, just stellar, tight version. This band is playing well together, feeding off each other, just like the days of yore.
New Potato - Phil still firmly in the engineers seat, powerful version.
Nobody Girl - great cover, enjoyed it.
China Doll - haunting, well played, not one of my favs so . . .
Cold Rain - Always like this as an opener or closer, more energy it seems is brought to it. My 1st GD song ever heard . . . was just a wee lad and heard it coming through my older bro's GF's car speakers and thought "well, I ain't never heard nothin like THIS before . . . Hey, Meg who is this?? The Grateful Dead". And my life was changed forever :)

E: Box . . . good close to a a GRATE "Phil" show.

Subject: Nothing left to do but ....... smile
A most enjoyable show, worth the 5 hours of driving to and from Charlotte last night. Watching Phil extend his arms and act like an airplane in Cosmic Charley was priceless. The "Come on home, your mama's calling you" ending showed he may have missed his calling in a barbershop quartet. Phil also was grinning throughout the show, making eye contact with John repeatedly in each song.

Hard to tell how Bob was doing behind the big ole burly mustache and beard but his licks were on the mark (well maybe after after Sunshine) and his vocals were excellent, especially in Caution. The sound (5th row right side) was crystal clear and John sounded uncannily like Senor Garcia. Seeing them so close in a small venue was gratifying after being in the rafters of Greensboro's coliseum for The Dead. Overall, last night was a refreshing evening of unexpected tunes, long time friends, strong vocals, and excellent music.

Superb recording Z-man

This is a good quality AUD from last nights show. During the second set there were people in the rafters walking around and there were police officers shining them with their flashlights. The music was about as good as you could expect from this band.

Highlights:
Crazy Fingers
Foolish Heart
Candyman
Sailor>Saint
Caution
